MO Death Cert. #32146

Age: 17 years, 4 months, 10 days

Christie lived on his parents farm in Bogard, and although they were quite poor, he was a hard worker. He enlisted in the army in Chillicothe, MO, and quickly was infected with influenza after guarding a plane all night in a very cold autumn rain storm. He died becoming part of the statistics for WWI veterans contracting influenza in the epidemic of 1918. His mother, Middie, never forgave herself for allowing him to leave home.
